Sleep measure validation in a pediatric neurocritical care acquired brain injury population.
Lingering morbidities including physical, cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial sequelae, termed the Post-Intensive Care Syndrome, persist years after pediatric neurocritical care (PNCC) hospitalization. Sleep disturbances impact other Post-Intensive Care Syndrome domains and are under-evaluated to date due to a lack of appropriate measurement tools. The present study evaluated the validity of the Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children (SDSC) to address the growing need for assessing sleep problems after PNCC.
